The problem is that the spacecrafts, which are going off in more or less opposite directions, are slowing faster than expected, suggesting that our estimate of solar mass is incorrect. An alternative possibility is that there is an accumulation of dark matter within our solar system that extends beyond the orbit of earth and the the spacecrafts are sufficiently distant to feel the gravitational effects of the invisible matter. But we on earth being in the midst of it, cannot discern it.
